Re: Newbie Corner & Military Miscellaneous - Aug 2016

There has been a lot of talk about air to air combat and missiles being fired/missing etc. Here is an old video of Israeli F-15s against Syrian MiG 21s. Note how the first missile misses even though it gets close and he had a lock.

What does this even mean ? Doesnt make sense Usually, just detecting an aircraft on radar doesn’t mean having a ‘firing solution’.

See at the high speed the R-73 travels in the end zone it needs transverse/lateral pulses to do the steering as there is not enough space (v^2/R) to do the gradual turn needed for TVC. Transverse control engine is essentially a motor with lateral/divert nozzles to provide the thrust. Makes sense. T...
